Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Fade out is the right term.  Radiohead, "Fade...out...again...")

In the Beatles song (I hadn't heard it before), the voice fades out to a whisper (like you said, a lullaby), while the music has a definite last string chord...

That idea of the voice fading out ties (in my head!0 into the idea that as you drop from hynagogic into slow wave there's a point where the external inputs are shut off, an actual moment, but the conscious mind doesn't notice because its faded out from external inputs as the internal stimuli come louder.

And I've ordered the film to watch--I really enjoyed the images, the film got a panning from a critic and high praise from two viewers, so we'll see!

Fade out is the right term

I'm still not sure we mean the same thing. What I meant is that the song goes on repeating itself like before, but the sound editor slowly turns down the volume. Say, like any Madonna song from the eighties, or this classic from Cindy Lauper:

the voice fades out to a whisper

I would say: the voice gets lighter, ends, and then there is a whisper.
